These are very easy and great for gift giving or just a treat for your family. We love to make them for the holidays.
Microwave chocolate in large bowl on High for 2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted,stirring after 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.
Stir in peanut butter until well blended. Cool to room temperature(it is important for the mixture and bowl to really feel room temperature NOT warm at all).
Gently stir in whipped topping. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Scoop truffle mixture with a melon baller or teaspoon,then shape into 1 inch balls. Roll in your favorite coating...enjoy! Store in refrigerator.
